I know this mother is not happy at all. It states that she will not be returning her child to this daycare. And other parents are saying it was just a mistake. But if it was there kid I think they would be mad as well.

that's really very traumatic to happen to any child! it's surely those guys fault and something must be done so other daycare centers never do something like this!

Someone should have double checked the center.

I would be irate. My son was left on the school bus at age 6. He cannot walk and does not talk. The bus driver forgot to bring him home and parked the bus and left. I can relate. I would be ready to hand some people. I would not return my child there either. The other parents would not feel that way, if it was their kids.

Hi Lifez2short! I think if it will be my kid, I would be furious too. Whatever reasons they have, daycare is suppose to be a trusted agency where you can be assured that your children are in a caring and secured environment without any doubt of neglect or irresponsibility. Just my thoughts, my friend. Have a nice day and take care.

I would be more than mad if they left and my child was still in there. The owner operster should be making sure that no child was in the builing before leaving and locking up. it appears to me they just got in to big of a hurry to go home. They should be losing their lisence. and not be allowed to be taking care of kids. There should be a walk though before leaveing. They should also have sign out sheet with a parents phone number to call to make sure the parent is coming to get the child and so they can tell if everychild had been picked up. This is very careless caretaking.

OMG I would be furious! As a mother of two this is perfect example of why I have never put my children in daycare! I can't believe that they "forgot" a child, those parents should sue the daycare, I know that I would.

My goodness that is terrible. The Daycare Center is very lucky the child is okay. According to the article, they have been cited several times for violations. You would think they would be extra careful not to have any more violations. I am training to drive a schoolbus and the "No Child Left Behind" is taken very seriously and there is a buzzer we have to push after checking everywhere on the bus to make sure there are no children left. The Daycares should train their employees to do a "sweep" of the building to insure all the children have been picked up by a parent or guardian before locking the doors. This is inexcusable to leave a child in the building. I would be livid if it was my child!! PEACE

"An honest mistake" well none the less a mistake that should never have happened. Same thing happened in Melbourne few years ago but in that case the staff knew the boy was there his mother was late to pick him up and they locked him in the play ground (outside) the mother could not get him as the fence was too high so she called the police.

I saw this one on another website and this is the whole reason I am a SAHM. My sister worked for daycares to put herself through college. She called me one after quite upset telling me why to never put my childern in a public daycare and the church ones' are not any better. She was starting a new job and as she was pulling in her very first day and there was a police car and firetruck ambulance and TV media van! SHe went in to expecting to start her new job and was wondering what the comotion was and apparently the lady she was taking over for was not giving her %100 that day and the divided her class up and left her with three to look after. She noticed after sometime she had only two and began asking the other teachers if they took this child they all said no. Well, durring this time he was found by the newsstation van of all people crossing the busy road across from the facility . Thwe child was all of 18 months old. When my sister learned what was going on she delicned the position and told them she would not be associated with a daycare that is this disfuctional. This isn't the only experience she had that was negative, just the most extereme. I can't imagine having been the mom of the child left in the daycare. I would be breaking in one way or another!
